Royal Liquor Strong Ale Week

Yesterday, Royal Liquor announced that the week of January 9th will be Royal Liquor Strong Ale Week.  The festivities include 3 free tasting events that will highlight a variety of strong ales.

Tuesday, January 10th, 5:30 - 7:30 PM - Blogger's Choice

Myself and Nate from KC Brew Review will be on hand for this tasting to chat and share some of our favorite higher ABV beers.

Thursday, January 12th, 5:30 - 7:30 PM - Schlafly Vertical Night

Western Missouri and Kansas Schlafly representative and Certified Cicerone Gary Briggs will be on hand as they pour:

- Schlafly Reserve Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout '08 and '11
- Schlafly Reserve Oak Aged Barleywine '08, '09, '10 and '11.

Limited 4 year vertical packs of both of these beers and speciality glassware will also be available for purchase.

Saturday, January 14th, 2-4 PM - Best of the Rest

This tasting will explore strong ales from regions and breweries that often get overlooked.

All tastings will take place at the 103rd/State Line Royal Liquor location. A complete list of beers will be posted soon, and once it is, I will be sure to update this post. In the meantime, you can go over the Facebook page for this event to RSVP and keep track of it as well.
